After travelling around USA celebrating my 50th Birthday with family, finishing in San Francisco this was a lovely treat and very luxurious The hotel looks to be at the highest point in San Fran and the walk up the steep street was a real workout; tram service very good, although $6 each to travel per journey so quite expensive but...

I stayed here for 5 nights. Amazing is all I can say. Room, staff, atmosphere -everything was amazing. My kids participated in doorman for the day. William was great with the kids and my daughter had a ball blowing the whistle and hailing cabs for the guests. Can't recommend The Fairmont highly enough. And Not To Mention The Massive Robes!!!!

Gorgeous hotel filled with history. Has been remodeled..bedding was great and room spacious. Only drawback was the lack of place in the bathroom to keep personal items...no drawers or shelf. Otherwise a true gem.

Every bit of this hotel is awesome. The location, the service, the room, the food….fantastic. Luxury to the max and a great treat for our anniversary. The lobby has this old world charm, complete with chandeliers and oversized chairs, however, the suite itself is filled with modern, elegant furnishings.

What is left to say about this landmark of San Francisco? We arrived within weeks of the latest earthquake (in Napa), and felt very safe perched atop Knob Hill in this seemingly indestructible building. The lobby is awe-inspiring. Doormen, front desk and concierge staff were friendly, courteous, knowledgable and always professional. Recommendations for off-site dining were excellent. Every effort was... More

My bed was excellent, room was clean, AC worked great. Short walking distance to many local non-chain restaurants and nightlife. Be forewarned, the hotel is on the top of the hill, so bring some walking shoes! Service was slow in the restaurant but the food was excellent.

Great hotel in great location. Nob Hill is great neighborhood to base your san fran visit out of with access to cable car and great views to bay. fairmount is an iconic property that retains its old world elegance while providing all modern amenities

Doorman service poor and rude, other services good but no newspaper left at door for loyality member. Housekeeping very good, and concierge service very helpful with local restaurants and directions. Overall good but prices and doorman service can be improved.

Although I have stayed at the Fairmont many times in the past this is the first time I have been moved to write a review. The service was outstanding, and the food and beverage experience we had was fantastic. From the doormen, to the bellmen, front desk, restaurant, coffee bar (Cafe Cento) everyone was outstanding. The housekeeping was wonderful, and... More

Situated at the top of Nob Hill on Mason Street. Street.parking is nye on impossible except in the hotel garage adjoining. Cost is about $60 per day. Easy reach of the famous cable cars. If staying more than one day, it is more economical to by a 3 day pass, rather than spending $8.0 per ride. The hotel offers good... More
